Dolly Parton turned 74 in January, but she’s already looking foward to her next birthday: she plans to recreate her 1978 Playboy cover shoot when she turns 75.
She recently told Australian 60 Minutes, “I plan to be on the cover of Playboy magazine again. I thought it would be such a hoot if they’ll go for it – I don’t know if they will – if I could be on the cover again, when I’m 75,” noting she could “probably” still wear her original outfit from the 1978 photo shoot.
Dolly became the first country singer to post for the magazine, appearing on the October 1978 cover in the iconic Playboy bunny outfit, ears and bow tie.
The Playboy cover shoot came up when she sparked what became known as the “Dolly Parton challenge”: Social media users would post four contrasting photos of themselves that would be appropriate profile photos for four different social media platforms: LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.
